Religious Education - Children's Social Justice

Children's Social Justice Projects

The first Sunday of every month, the children are gathered together for “Social Action Sunday”. They periodically start out in the sanctuary to listen to an age appropriate "Child’s Eye View" which often includes a story and then go to the RE wing to engage in some type of social action project. Our topics vary widely including hunger and food issues, Guest at Your Table lessons, arts and crafts with a social justice theme, nature and music, dance and yoga for all the ages.

Other social action projects this year included school supplies for underprivileged children, Guest at Your Table donations in partnership with the UUSC, bread and muffin baking for a food pantry, the Mitten Tree, planting seeds for Hobbs Farm, and planting and cleaning up in Julia’s Garden at the Fellowship. Each Sunday children bring their offerings of coins which we later vote to distribute at the year end. This year we voted to donate to Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown to help the rehabilitation of wild animals.  We also collect aluminum flip-tops for the Ronald McDonald House.
